Hamburg's culture is thought to be even closer to those of its trade partner cities in the Netherlands, England and Denmark than to the culture of south-German cities. The city's population is renowned for its quiet and unpretentious conduct and responsive attitude toward each other and tourists.
Hamburg's center has a compact planning and well arranged transport system, so visitors usually find it easy to take bearings. Hamburg is not rich in outstanding showplaces. However, the red-light district of St. Pauli attracts sailors and visitors arriving in the area to blow off a little steam and dance to a sweet R'n'R tune.
Although this may appear dubious, the city seems to have brought it off in an advantageous way, creating a profound mixture between today's glamour and the area's traditional poignant environment. This place was once frequented by many musical celebrities, including the Beatles. Indeed, it is music that has been most instrumental in making St. Pauli the place it is today, not sex! Anyway, for those who appreciate the hustling and bustling of weekend nightlife, the Reeperbahn Street and adjacent streets will be an ideal place.
